Snippet -

Ever since Dust 514 was announced to be a PS3 exclusive, some in the Eve playerbase have been worried about a Sony takeover of CCP - especially now that CCP is making IPO noises in the run-up to the Dust 514 release. Care to comment on or debunk these rumors?

Folks - there is NO truth whatsoever to the rumor that Sony is buying CCP. I went to Fan[fest] as a player. Ask my corp mates. I did the pub crawl. I hung out. I ate that shitty nasty shark whateverthehell it is thing. It's as simple as that. In the online gaming industry there are really very few companies. I know most of their CEOs and really like most of them a lot and play their games. Hilmar was kind enough to give us an office tour and extend some wonderful Icelandic hospitality. There it is. Nothing more.

Only reason I'd tend to believe him is that there is NO way they have the budget to buy CCP.

SOE is so desperate for cash they are selling off their IPs in whole or part. No way they can afford to acquire another company.


I was able to play dust514 for a little while over the weekend. It was pretty good. It was the same old run of the mill shooter action though.

Doubt SOE has the money to buy out CCP to begin with.
